beauty of small

artwork by Ukrainian artist, Vika Muse / ekphrastic poem linked with dVerse Poets

winter’s dormant season dies slow
as warmer blast blows past until
ice melt meets raindrops in rivulets

streams swell around my rock island
where elfin pup and i gladly greet spring
beneath big green dock leaf umbrella

magic blue mushrooms push up
through the wetness while pink fairy
flowers blush from sheer happiness

in world of war, hate, and polarization
imagination provides bright inspiration
to bring fresh hope, to dream of peace

    “fairy flowers blush from sheer happiness” yes, just like that, from happiness they blush. Love this line.

    in world of war, hate, and polarization let’s find the joy
    And let’s align with imagination to keep hope of peace alive always.
    So lovely, Lynn. Adore the words and art. Thanks. XoXo

    It does indeed. You’ve created a magic world with your words to match the one in the painting. (K)

    I love your attention to the details of the painting…such as “pink fairy
    flowers blush from sheer happiness” . A beautiful place of hope.
